This is my first foray into the Belgian White Ales...cloudy and straw colored, nice hints of citrus, very easy drinking, ideal for summertime on those hot days.

People seem to either really like this, or really dislike it. I fall into the latter.

This has to be one of the most overrated beers on the site. I doubt it is possible to make a wit more bland and uninteresting than this.

it smells fantastic, and is incredably smooth. i really enjoyed this beer, and it seems to be one both sexes agree on.

Had this on tap at brewpub. Hazy yellow,decent head and lacing. Typical wit aromas, a bit yeast heavy. Thin bodied, nicely spiced with a yeasty mustiness I enjoyed. Im going on memory here but it was average for the style but drinkable nonetheless.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 Looks great in a glass, but not as much froth as I would like to see. Decent yeasty flavor but not too deep. Very drinkable in multiples - seems to be more guzzle-worthy than other white wheat beers I can recall drinking. I really like this style, but if you really want a good example of Belgian White go find some Celis White (if you can).

This is made by Coors? Well, it’s certainly the best thing Coors makes. However, we are talking about Coors here, so even their best (which this is) is a mediocre effort.

Northernbrewer (147) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2002
Not a lot of character and none of the frothy head and crisp yet full body one expects from wheat. Still, far more enjoyable than most other coors products. Some real spice in this one, but a lot less character than Cellis.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2004 A very nice beer. Not as much flavor as Blvd. Zon (the only other Belgian White I have tried to this point), but still good. Great considering it is made by Coors. Appearance was not typical of most wheat beers... most have a muddy/cloudy look, this one did not.
